That's a fair point. I wasn't planning to generate a production key
until I was ready to publish but there's no harm in doing it now. On
careful reading of this:
there is a sentence that goes "You can not publish an application that
is signed with the debug key generated by the SDK tools. " I suspect
"export" and "publish" are interchangeable in this case. I was
thinking that publish meant placing in the Marketplace. Perhaps we
should log a bug against the documentation to make that clearer?
